09/06/17 - British Study Centre Visit To Fairfield Home Site

Thursday 15th June saw Kingerlee welcome 16 construction students from Lille Polytechnic, France to our Fairfield Residential Home project. The students had come to Oxford for a two week technical language improvement course to help improve their technical knowledge and grasp of the English language. Chris Smith (Site Manager) led the proceedings with a brief presentation about the history of Kingerlee and the types of project and sectors that we work in and this was followed by a tour of the site where the students were able ask questions about the project, construction methods and techniques and watch both 2nd floor columns being poured with concrete and view the Metsec frame installation progressing to the managers house and block C. Paul Hardy (Construction Director)  and George Edward (Construction Manager) were also on hand to assist and field any questions as they arose. The event lasted approximately 2 hours and was a great success for all. Thank you also to organisers British Study Centres School of English, Oxford for their generous £200.00 contribution to our charity of the Year Maggies Centre.
